Shabby Chic ...

Hi Everybody,

The cards that I have been making in the Shabby Chic style have gone down a real treat with many of you and I have had lots of emails and comments about them. So today it is my pleasure no tell you that there is a new video on YouTube showing how I made this
I really enjoy making this style as I can go to town with all the bits and bobs I love to add.
Some one has said that they really like all the "Frippery" that I add and I thought that was a lovely word to describe the cards.

The flowers, leaves and lace are all from  Wild Orchid Crafts   and are a mixture of pale blue and beige. The pearls are from  Want2Scrap and the frame is cut from white card from Papermill Direct using the Die D-Lites Reflections from Spellbinders


Thank you for all the positive comments and I am happy that you like the cards too ... I have many more to show you and also to make on video

And over on Card Making MagicI am going to add a special section where I can add all the Shabby Chic Videos together I will tell you all on here when it is done and hopefully then you will pop over and visit the page.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  6. Very beautiful! I love your floral sprays and the added touches of paint and glitter. I also appreciate your idea of die cutting in multiples to create a faux chipboard look. Always enjoy your videos and your shabby chic cards!
